Beautiful shot of a beautiful bride. Looks like the Lightsphere does a great job of diffusing the flash. I never would have guessed you used flash if you hadn't said so.

I thought the Lightsphere was just some tupperware at a high price-boy was I wrong. This thing does magic up to 12-15 feet-if you do weddings or portraits you shouldn't be without it. It takes a little adjusting to get it to fit snug-I bought my flash on Ebay for not much $$ so I used adhesive velcro to stabilize it. As far as I'm concerned it isn't coming off this flash again.

That's quite an endoresement for the GF Lightsphere! How does it work in rooms with high ceilings or outdoors? I use the Stofen Omnibounce, but it requires a ceiling to bounce the light and therefore, not very useful in places like churches with high ceilings or outdoors.

This was shot in the "Photo" room at the hotel where the reception was held. Ceilings were about 12-0. Notice there are no shadows anywhere-taken from about 15-0 feet away. Paid $39.00 from B&H with free shipping. BTW these are all jpegs right out of the camera-just cropping
